Praise for festival

ON Thursday, May 19, I was invited by my grandson to a south coast schools festival – skool fest schools and the bands.

The schools there were Worthing High, Shoreham Academy, Durrington High, Sir Robert Woodard Academy, Steyning Grammar, Blatchington Mill and Davison.

Except for the battering of my ear drums, it was so wonderful to see the enthusiasm that they gave but I admire the time and dedication they have put into it.

Also, the time and encouragement the teachers have put in, unfortunately it was not publicised well, but after hearing bad things about youths in the papers, I have only praise – they need more support.
